Frostgrave: Red In Claw And Maw

This weekend, we got together for another painting bash to put together more Frostgrave figures.  This time I focused on painting up some of the wildlife my warband will include.

Spraying Them Up And Stripping Them Down

My friends have really gotten into the Frostgrave spirit but I thought I should finish up some pending models before I forget.  Those models would be my small Test of Honour set.  I have had my Ninjas and Samurai ready and primed for a while now and recently thought that I should prime my Ninjas in a dark color to make painting them up go so much quicker.  I grabbed the models and got to work.

ugh. What the hell?!

Walking Dead Wednesday: Wave 5 News And Thoughts

Lots of Walking Dead: All Out War news is coming in from Mantic now.  Their blog is dedicating the week to hype up the upcoming fifth Wave of the game and even though I was a little down based on the news I heard from Gen Con, the content for Wave 5 is still sounding strong.

Metallic Conclusion

I know, I know. You might be thinking, “He can’t possibly have any more posts about Batman Metal…” But, you’d be wrong.  I have one final thing to wrap up and this one is a little odd as it’s not game or minis related.  It is the finale to my Metal comic collection: my comic’s case.

Wood is the new Metal after all.

Or Resin Is The New Metal?

Yep, more Metal talk as today I briefly show off some of the new Knight Models miniatures I picked up. First off, we have the new Batman Who Laughs.

Dipping Into The Animated Series

Batman The Animated Series was a staple cartoon that I watched as a kid and when I first got into Knight Model’s Batman Miniature Game, I was excited to see that they had some Animated Series figures.  Unfortunately, they only had a handful of minis and with the game being heavily skirmish-based, you couldn’t make much of a team out of their offerings.  The minis were great but they needed more of it.

Painting Boot Camp: A Simple Start

As I mentioned on Friday, we had an intro to painting session with a friend that has decided to join the hobby fold. He’s been on the sidelines, listening in, but now he’s ready to get into the game.  I decided to start from scratch so we first put together a mini from the North Star Frostgrave Soldiers set and then dove in with the two models I assembled/primed earlier.

Frostgrave Friday

No, this won’t be a new series, it’s just a cheap alliteration.  I still have stories that need be told from my adventures at Gen Con and I wanted to focus in on my Frostgrave experience in particular.  The best event I participated at the ‘Con was the Frostgrave free-for-all hosted by the game’s designer Joseph McCullough. The host was nice, the game was great and everything was well run.

Wood Is The New Metal

As I previewed last time, I’m doing some test projects to get back up to speed with my CNC machine, post-move.  One of the projects is making a Dark Nights Metal logo from the Batman comics. It’s a pretty simple routing cut but, as always, things are bound to go wrong.

Stupid “A”…

Dropping Minis All Weekend Long

This weekend saw a lot of Dropzone as we celebrated a friend’s birthday with a bunch of Dropzone Commander games going off simultaneously.  With 6 players, we had all five factions represented and I did a poor job of capturing the event as we had several interesting games going on.  My map featured the orbital defense laser in the “Laser 2” scenario from Reconquest Phase 1.  The Shaltari v UCM was  river defense layout and the Shaltari v Scourge was a custom narrative scenario with some elevated highway terrain.
